Happy New Year

The tickets are booked, and even if the passport hasn’t been renewed, the insurance hasn’t been paid for, and the malaria drugs haven’t been purchased come April 7th 2011 I will be boarding a Malaysia Airlines flight bound for Kuala Lumpur and then Bangkok.

The plan is to not plan too much. We want to keep it simple so we don’t feel like we have to rush anywhere.

A night or two after arriving in Bangkok we’ll be on a train northwards to Chiang Mai to celebrate Songkran. Here’s hoping I don’t catch a terrible cold (or pneumonia :) after 3 days of having water dumped on my head.
